Denise taking a dose of painkiller - she shoved a hook all the way into her arm & I had to shove it the rest of the way through & then cut the barb off and pull it out. it bruised up real good but she was a trooper!
Camp scene - Smithers is ready. we told him about being top heavy, & sure enough, he got swamped twice!
